MIAMI, (Reuters) – Former Washington Wizards guard Mike Miller has joined an already top-rated class of newcomers with the Miami Heat, the team said yesterday.
Miller, a free agent with 10 years of NBA experience, has signed a five-year deal with the Heat, local media reported. He joins All-Star newcomers LeBron James and Chris Bosh on a team that has re-signed Dwyane Wade and Udonis Haslem.
“We consider him to be the finest perimeter shooter in the NBA,” Heat president Pat Riley said in a statement released by the team.
“But also he is a multi-faceted player who can rebound, handle the ball and make plays,” Riley added. “We expect big things from him.”
Miller led the Wizards in three-pointers last season and averaged 10.9 points and 6.2 rebounds in 54 games.
